Less than two weeks ago we reported on artist Scott Marsh's now world famous six-metre mural, which depicts Kanye kissing Kanye and went viral after news outlets picked it up around the globe. Shortly after, the artist was contacted by someone claiming to represent Kanye's management and offering a large sum to have it painted over - but no-one really believed the demand was actually coming from the Beverly Hills-based rapper.

In news just in, it looks like it could have been - Marsh has now received the $100,000 he requested to buff out the mural on art website IxRun, and yesterday he quickly got to work painting over his masterpiece. Marsh took to Instagram to share the news, posting a photo of the work in progress (above) with the caption, "If anyone needs me I'll be at the #lordgladstone drinking from the topshelf."

Marsh hasn't publicly confirmed that he received the cash from Kanye, but we're guessing no-one else cared enough to fork out $100,000 to have it removed. No word yet on whether the buyer will also be shipping over the lifetime supply of Yeezy's Marsh requested.

If you were planning to get a selfie with the mural, you've missed your chance - although Marsh has left Kanye's pinkie finger untouched.
